Great shot, I tried to take a pic of the berries and just couldn’t get it right! Great little plant.

Lots of you liked a photograph I posted earlier of some black mondo grass, so here is some more, growing with some snowdrops around the base of some white barked silver birch.

Black mondo grass doing its mid-winter thing. I wonder why mid-winter berries are often dark. Christmas box is another with almost black berries. #black #berries

I first saw it at the botanic gardens in Edinburgh & bought a little plant a while after. It's is now established and spreads well but not too quickly! Transplants very easily too. Great little plant 😊😊 @Jasonsparkes1 @gjones

I hope it survives Kari. It's originally from Eastern Asia, mainly China & Japan, if that helps @KariSamuel
